The Pizza Delivery States of Infected Mushroom is a gargantuan, environmentally stunning nation, ruled by IM with an iron fist, and renowned for its smutty television, soft-spoken computers, and punitive income tax rates. The hard-nosed, cynical, cheerful population of 17.737 billion citizens are ruled with an iron fist by the dictatorship government, which ensures that no-one outside the party gets too rich. In their personal lives, however, citizens are relatively unoppressed; it remains to be seen whether this is because the government genuinely cares about its people, or if it hasn't gotten around to stamping out civil rights yet.

The relatively small, corrupt, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Environment, Industry, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Crayon City. The average income tax rate is 62.3%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Infected Mushroomian economy, worth a remarkable 5,835 trillion Kefkaris a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Pizza Delivery, Soda Sales, Book Publishing, and Information Technology. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is an amazing 329,024 Kefkaris, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Students are known to arrive at school in their pyjamas, people faint regularly as they get stuck with compulsory vaccinations, the dish 'poisson avec poison' is only available on the black market, and organised sports are frowned upon as frivolous. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Infected Mushroom's national animal is the Pixie, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Infected Mushroom is ranked 273,213th in the world and 15th in Mount Olympus for Most Patriotic, with 0.34 flags saluted per person per day.
